Bear Market Rally | English Lesson

Jun 1, 2022

In today’s lesson, we are going to look at the expression “Bear Market Rally.”

Check out this headline, which was published by Reuter’s yesterday.

So what does that mean?

Well, first let’s see what a bear market is.

A “bear market” describes a situation where the overall stock market drops in value by 20% or more from its recent highs. In other words.. when the stock market is in terrible shape!

So what about a “bear market rally”? Well, that’s when the prices turn around suddenly and start to rise – in other words, prices bounce back – but that rally doesn’t last, and prices continue to fall.


And finally, what is a “strategist”? Well, a strategist is someone who thinks about and plans an action. So, a strategist at Morgan Stanley would be someone who analyzes the market in order to see what people should invest in, and when.

So, in summary.

  • Bear market: A stock market where prices are falling fast.
  • Bear market rally: When prices temporarily start to rise during a bear market.
  • Strategist: The person who analyzes a situation and plans an action.


That’s our lesson for today. Remember, you can reach me here with any questions or comments. Have a great day!
